Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. In this post from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, we explain seven ways dental bonding improves smiles.
The dental bonding procedure involves a resin material that is sturdy and matches the color of your teeth. It is applied while soft, and then hardened with a special light.
The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished. Bonding has many uses. We’ll consider bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.
4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.
6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.
